Show #30: The American Invasion

logo

The 30th show already? No clever theme related to that fine number, mainly because I’m not very clever. Still, we had a solid show with some epic artists, as we tackled The British Invasion. It was a weird phenomenon where British artists covered American artists, yet somehow these British artists still took America by storm. The white kids in the great US and A had no idea that the songs they were hearing from these bands “invading” the states were actually written and played by artists right in their own backyard. Of course many of these bands went on to reach legendary status like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who, they all came from one place: American music. USA! USA!
